I am 25 years-old and have two little boys. We've been going through a transitional period here lately. I lost my job and just started training to do an at home job taking calls. It will take about another week for me to actually start working and earning income. I also attend school online and have been trying to finish up my end of semester stuff. On top of th regular househole stuff and errands, I have job training and school work to do. My husband helps some, but not as much as I'd like for him to. He's looking for a job right now, so I know he's here to help out with the kids, but most of the time we send them in their room to watch a movie or out in the back yard to play together. They want to be spending time with us, but I keep sending them away cuz I'm so busy right now. I spent some time reading to them tonight and put them to bed (like a good mom), but it's hard for me to get in the habit of doing this.Answer Question

Reading to them does not matter at all.
You don't say how old they are. Of course you are being a bad mom. You are looking for people to tell you it's ok. It's not. You only have one chance with your kids. Working and going to school is too much when you have young kids.
Of course it's best if you are a full time mother and know how to do a good job at mothering. If you can't do that you should choose work or school. You can get so much money from financial aid there should be no reason to need to work. My son is going to college and not working at all and his wife only works part time so they can be with thier 18 mo and they are making it. I have 2 sons in college, I know and I was recently in grad school, I know all about financial aid.
